For over a hundred years, photographers have been using Leica cameras to capture special moments all over the world. Some of these remain timeless artefacts.
The Leica Akademie’s origins hark back to the year 1930, when the “Lehr-Atelier Wetzlar” teaching studio became the basis for training courses at the Leitz factory in Wetzlar. Two darkrooms and a daylight room quickly became insufficient for demand. When the “Leica Schule” was then founded in 1938, it was given an entire floor of the building.
The Leica Akademie has undertaken successful international expansion over the last decade to meet growing demand from abroad.
